The club will also have their newest joint effort quilt on display and tickets will be available for the drawing which will take place it Fall Festival planned for September 15

The visitors will be able to choose their favor quilt as winner of the Viewer’s Choice Award. For the contest, awards will be decided in four categories: full size quilts, machine-quilted full size quilt, wall hangings and quilted miscellaneous items. Voting will close at 3 p.m. with ribbons awarded at 3:30 p.m., so get there early!

Please attend this event and support this talented group of women. Quilt members wish to thank the public for all their support in so many ways. Proceeds from ticket sales for the quilt drawing help to defray the cost of hosting the retreat each year. Donations of fabric are also greatly appreciated and some of these fabrics are used to make “comfort” quilts which are given to community members who may need some comfort at certain times.
